We are friends, family, and neighbors who want to plant seeds of change.

 Ruth Akumbu, the Founder, takes a holistic approach in the service of individuals and communities. 


 In 2001, friends, colleagues, and the founder created the Seek Ye Multipurpose Group in their native county of   Cameroon, Africa. The grassroots mission was to provide:


Financial support of kids in less-fortunate communities


Outreach and exposure to subjects such as clean water, AIDS prevention resources, and education


Sponsor sporting events for young people in communities and schools


Financial, educational, and material support of women particularly single mothers and uneducated/under-educated children in learning entrepreneurial ventures that can better their lives and their communities.


Provide computer technology competencies


 We bring opportunities to the communities.

Working within the heart of communities and their infrastructure, we aim to catalyze a force through friends, partnerships, donors, etc – interested in bettering our communities and ourselves. As a result of these efforts, Seek Ye grew into the Plant A Seed nonprofit in 2010, a bi-continental organization in the United States and Cameroon. Combining the resources of both continents, we continue to plant seeds of hope and knowledge to grow strong communities in our home Cameroon, Africa, and beyond.

 Mission Statement

Turning hopes and dreams into reality by creating change and opportunity in individuals, schools, and communities across Cameroon and the world through education.
